Earlier today, President Obama’s Twitter feed tweeted this message:

obama-tweet-hacked

Here’s the embedded version. Click on the link in it.

Some of the time, the link goes to a WaPo story about immigration reform. But some of the time, the link leads to this violent YouTube video that was evidently produced by elements of the Syrian rebellion.

The Syrian Electronic Army claims that it has hacked President Obama’s Twitter feed, according to Gizmodo.

In just latest of many head-turning exploits, the Syrian Electronic Army now says it’s broken into Barack Obama’s Twitter account and website. Indeed, the hacker organization showed images of the website’s backend and Obama campaign email accounts.

While the Obama Twitter account hasn’t gone wild (as with other attacks), there is at least one tweet that points to a graphically violent SEA video on YouTube. The SEA reportedly confirmed the hacks in an email to Mashable.

The hackers have also managed to redirect part of Obama’s website—OFA.BO/SEA—to the Syrian Electronic Army’s website. The extent of the hack is, otherwise, unclear, as the SEA seems to be livetweeting its exploits. We’ll keep an eye on the latest and update you as we go. [SEA]

By all means, let’s keep our healthcare in Team Obama’s hands.

Doesn't appear to be the Twitter account, but the website (or URL shortener) that is being used. That's the actual content.

At this rate, maybe they'll blame the Syrians for the failure of the Obamacare website.

Is it any more interesting now than when Obama was posting? If it is I might actually waste a couple of minutes over there.

If they did hack Obama's Twitter account, it's probably because he used a stupid password, like hope&change. Never underestimate the sheer boneheadedness of this administration.

They didn't attack his twitter stream. They hacked his URL shortening website. That's why it's only off part of the time.
